The Well-Tuned Racer: a Quick Introduction to Strength and Conditioning for Racing Drivers

Share this Article

Tuned racerIf you’re reading this, you must be a lighting quick driver, and you just finished a fast lap testing, qualifying, or racing. (If you’re not, I give you permission to pretend you are for the duration of this short introduction.). So you have the speed, talent, and determination. But are you in great physical condition so that you can repeat and enhance, your performance today, tomorrow, and over the long-haul of your career? Your physical condition is what allows your talent to shine and happen, and it’s not set in stone. It can be improved with your habits and routines, and of course, it can also worsen with the wrong habits and routines. Your body is governed by natural principles innate to your Biology. It’s similar to the way the sun rises and falls, gravity pulls things to the Earth, and a farmer reaps his harvest. It is authentic.

As a coach, life-long athlete, sports enthusiast, and friend, I’m going to share with you perspectives to consider on safe, highly productive physical conditioning for drivers. Please, keep in mind, that the body and mind are connected. They can synergize for the better. Similar to how a driver harmonizes and “zones in” with his car. The first article will provide conditioning acumen relating to recovering from tough practices and races. We’ll go from there.

Best regards.
